ESPERIDIAO, Elizabeth and MUNARI, Denize Bouttelet. Eyes and ears open: discourse fragments about the nursing formation process. In Proceedings of the 8.

Being a teacher allows us to evaluate that the nursing formation process, influenced by the Cartesian Paradigm, continues to prioritize professional training, essentially by means of technical qualification, favoring the division between the personal and professional spheres in the future nurse. With a view to reassessing this problem and sustained by a holistic approach, we tried to experience the full education, taking care not only of the restricted sense of technical competence, but preparing people integrated in what they are doing. This study aims to analyze the nursing students' discourse about their formation. 21 students were interviewed, whose discourse was submitted to content analysis and systematized in two categories: "Holistic only in theory" and "The struggle of feelings". The students notice the fragmented formation directed at technical and scientific knowledge, especially privileging the needs o the people they will attend. The personal dimension and the feelings they try along the course are relegated to the background or left out of consideration in this process. The conclusion of this research gave us a stronger conviction that the Schools of Nursing need to reconsider their students' formation, for them to turn into complete persons who are integrated in the exercise of their profession.
